Trent Newmeyer has been studying pregnancy options for the HIV community since 2007.
His latest research collaboration is a qualitative evaluation of the Positive Pregnancy program created in 2006 at St. Michael’s Hospital.
The Positive Pregnancy Program is a multidisciplinary program established for the care of HIV-positive pregnant women.
Working with program creators Jay MacGillivray (midwife) and Dr. Mark Yudin (Obstetrician) and two peer research assistants, he will evaluate the effectiveness of this multidisciplinary program.
Involving the community, multiple meetings occurred prior to program initiation with HIV-positive women and with community organizations serving this population. The aim is to provide supportive and comprehensive care from a variety of perspectives, including medical, social, and psychological.
